241 A Perfect Circle

I'm so irate with Tool and A Perfect Circle right now, and I'm an enormous fan, but what about some news, some leaks, just bloody something about what they're doing? There has been jack for a decade from both, and to criticise Maynard for his own pompousness is a shame, but don't bands write music? Isn't that what musicians do? If they both no longer exist, at-least have the common decency to inform your fans. Their all too clever for their own good, which, ironically makes them fools. PS: Maynard, your red wine is crap.

A Perfect Circle are fantastic, but it's a stretch to throw them on a metal thread. They can be pulverising when they want to be, but one song in ten years? Come on.

You guys. Are idiots a perfect circle is awesome

Just like Tool, anyone who loves Maynard's vocals, lyrics, intelligence, and music has to listen to him singing Bohemian Rhapsody on Puscifer's Donkey Punch the Night ep. It's a welcome addition to his repertoire, but seriously...

245 Whitesnake Whitesnake Whitesnake are a rock band formed in England in 1978 by singer David Coverdale, after his departure from his previous band Deep Purple.

Hey, I used to dig them. I think Coverdale, or some other noteworthy people were in there. Classy band many, many moons ago.

246 Old Man's Child Old Man's Child Old Man's Child is a Norwegian black metal band from the city of Oslo. The band is the brainchild of Galder who is the only permanent member of the band now.

249 Fairyland Fairyland Fairyland is a symphonic power metal band from France created in 1998 by songwriters Philippe Giordana and Willdric Lievin in 1998.

Awesome band. And very underrated. They are a french band. But they sing in English. I recommend their songs. Especially those who love symphonic/power metal. - zxm

Aren't these guys the band that claim they're superior to early Metallica?

It'really sad see them so low in this list, they're last album is amazing.

251 Five Bolt Main

253 Dope Dope

Stoner rock that preceded the Sabbath's Sweet Leaf, I believe?

254 Memphis May Fire
255 Emmure Emmure Emmure is an American metalcore band formed in 2003. Originally based in New Fairfield, Connecticut, but now residing in Queens, New York, the group has a total of seven releases, with their first public release being a 2006 EP entitled The Complete Guide to Needlework.

Sorry, but Emmure are absolute garbage and shouldn't even be here at all. They only play two strings, their lyrics are even worse than 5FDP and their frontman Frankie is just a disgusting human being. Easily one of the worst "metal" bands of all time.

256 Cacophony
257 Xasthur Xasthur Xasthur is a black metal and acoustic project of American musician Scott Conner, formed in 1995. Xasthur was perhaps the most notable black metal group from America. In 2010, Conner announced the end of Xasthur, after 8 black metal albums. However, in 2015, Conner revived Xasthur as an acoustic project. more.
258 Nocturnus
259 After Forever

The best Dutch metal band. Powerful, but beautiful female vocals Floor Jansen, combined with a very diverse and beautiful emotional music. The group sounds great live!

260 Slapshock

Ya this band I consider metal although they sounds the same with the other contemporary american bands, still proud to be included in this category along with those monsters of rock.

Make that the first ever asian band to berform in Desert Rock festival in Dubai. - aeromaxx777

They are the only Philippine band who performed with Korn. Let's see if "Bamboo" band can do that. - aeromaxx777

One of the best on my opinion...
